20 Tavistock Square
Developments in technology and the digitalization of higher education have helped universities to work more efficiently and collaboratively than ever before. Connected by shared data platforms and information technology, students and staff are no longer tied to one location. Instead they can work with partners and institutions across the globe.
However, increased collaboration and data integration also brings challenges. Risks must be managed, interference prevented, and threats negotiated. In this environment, how do we set procedures that maintain trust in UK research, ensure the integrity of security procedures, and protect academic freedom and staff both here and overseas?
UUK's one-day event is dedicated to helping universities protect their research, education activities and expertise, as well as to capitalise on the opportunities presented by international partnerships.
This is an issue rarely discussed and poorly understood. New guidance is expected on the issue in the coming year, and this is the perfect chance for universities to build understanding and experience on the subject.
This event is open to staff at universities at all levels who are interested in gaining and in-depth understanding of the processes and tactics universities can use to mitigate threats. It will be particularly useful for those involved in setting strategy, or establishing policies and processes.
This event is not restricted to senior management, and practitioners and specialists in this area will also find this event useful to attend.
Please do feel free to contact us via phone or email if you would like to understand more about the event, and whether it will be useful for you.
